There are 9 task cards, each with a word problem requiring students to write and solve a system of three linear equations with three variables. A student recording sheet is also included.
Also included are two example problems that you use as guided practice before students begin the task card practice. A key is included with the system of equations for each word problem.
For struggling students, also included are the pieces to each equation that students will formulate. You can cut these pieces out and put in a bag or envelope and attach to each task card. Students can physically piece together the parts of each equation. This helps students struggling to write the equations greatly.
